The Nanomembrane Laser Detector Receiver

 

I like it!  Here we find some cutting edge radio technology that does not involve millions of microscopic transistors and thousands of lines of code. And it can be explained in a few paragraphs without resort to exotic math.  It even makes use of our beloved LC resonant circuit.  Quick, where did I put Billy's green laser?  And where can I get some silicon nitride?
